Abstract

DIAL is a web server for the automatic identification of structural domains given the 3D coordinates of a protein. Delineation of the structural domains and their exact boundaries are the starting points for the better realization of distantly related members of the domain families, for the rational design of the experiments and for clearer understanding of the biological function. The current server can examine crystallographic multiple chains and provide structural domain solutions that can also describe domain swapping events. The server can be accessed from http://www.ncbs.res.in/~faculty/mini/DIAL/home.html. The Supplementary data can be accessed from http://www.ncbs.res.in/~faculty/ mini/DIAL/supplement.html.
